Body contouring is another term for nonsurgical fat reduction. At Aqua Vitae, we offer a variety of nonsurgical fat reduction procedures to patients in Charleston, Mount Pleasant, and the surrounding areas. Body contouring is perfect for reducing or removing stubborn pockets of fat. Most nonsurgical fat reduction treatments are based on one of these four principles:
- Laser lipolysis uses controlled heating and laser energy to target fat cells.
- Radiofrequency lipolysis uses controlled heating and ultrasound technology to target fat cells.
- Injection lipolysis uses injectable deoxycholic acid to target fat cells.
- Cryolipolysis, or controlled cooling, uses freezing temperatures to target and destroy fat cells.
Non-surgical body contouring procedures aren’t intended to be weight loss solutions. Ideal candidates for body contouring are close to their desired weight and want to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. With most body contouring procedures, your body mass index shouldn’t be over 30.
